1.Q Tell me about the first time you remember being thrilled.
1.A Age 7 flying a kite for the first time with my grandparents. I remember feeling in awe at the powers that existed with which I had no control over whatsoever, except to work alongside it to make my kite dance. I have always since had a fascination with the forces of nature though have never fulfilled it.
2.Q What’s the slightest thing to have thrilled you?
2.A Taking chocolates from the box at Christmas when they were supposed to be kept out of reach, I was only about 7 after all!
3.Q What’s the most frightening yet thrilling thing you’ve done?
3.A Almost crashing my car, skidding towards danger but being able to control the car to safely without thinking about it. I was amazed by the powers of the human mind being able to automatically counterbalance the effects of the skid. Scary as hell, would love to do it again providing I knew I would go unharmed.
4.Q Tell me why you’re not completely sensible.
4.A A life without pleasures is a life only half lived. You have to break from the norm occasionally to stop life becoming dull and mundane. I guess that on occasions it is also to impress others.
5.Q What’s the most uninhibited thing you’ve ever done?
5.A Really cant think what this would be, I’ve never really completely let myself go. `there are many things I would love to do but would never dream of doing due to social implications
6.Q What have you considered doing for pleasure but were too concerned about the risks?
6.A Streaking has always sounded fun, though I could never do it due to complexes about my own body, I think that if I had a different body then I may do it, but then I wouldn’t be the man I am anyway.

7.Q Describe the event in one sentence (there’s time to expand later)
7.A Cracking an egg on my mum’s head
8.Q Tell me a bit about yourself around this time.
8.A I was probably about 10 years old, looking to express myself as an individual though still under the restraints of my parents.
9.Q List the sequence of events leading up to your thrill. Try to remember how you felt at each stage. The smallest detail could be important (this is your chance to expand).
9.A 1. Friends rang to say they were going to the cinema – Excited at possibility
2. Asked my mum if I could have some money to go the cinema – Ever hopeful
3. Refused permission and money to go – Anger, it seemed so unfair
4. Threatened to crack an egg on her head, don’t know why! – Real adrenaline rush as I had never really back-chatted before
10.Q What were your thoughts and feelings at the precise moment of thrill?
10.A Smashed it on her head – Huge release of emotions at once; anger, sadness, freedom ,fantastic feeling of achievement. Turned immediately from a positive rush to a horrible guilt and disbelief at what I had done in the moment.
11.Q What did you do afterwards?
11.A Made to wash it out of her hair – I felt so much guilt but inside I was proud of my first stand against my mum.
12.Q What were the risks?
12.A A sore bottom and a lasting rift between my mother and myself.
13.Q What did you imagine other people thought of you during and after the event?
13.A My mum could not believe I was going through with it. No-one else was there to witness it though I remember my father being shocked, angry, but inside quite amused.
14.Q How often do you think about the event, and why?
14.A It often comes up when discussing my childhood with friends as it is a funny topic that is bound to make people laugh when told as a story. Its only really funny if they know me though as they have to be able to relate to my current personality, not half as uninhibited.
15.Q Some people probably don’t understand how such a thing can thrill you; explain it to them.
15.A Just try it. Making a threat and then carrying it out is one the most emotional rides possible
16.Q What three changes could have made the experience better, and why?
16.A A bigger egg, someone else to witness it, being able to go to the cinema at the end of it.
